12 months

Twelve months ago today this man met me at the airport with a bunch of roses in one hand and a woolly coat in the other.  We've built a home together, had 17 sets of international guests, attended 2 weddings, visited 3 countries, built 4 different Ikea "things", had numerous fights in English (but none in German), eaten 8 homegrown tomatoes and 1 homegrown fig, attended 1 opera, 4 Symphonies, celebrated 1 Australia Day,  1 Austria Day and through all of this cried, laughed and danced our way into falling in love with Berlin.

Matthias, du bist mein Lieblingspartner und ich liebe dich uher.
